Tonee Messiah

View stockroom & exhibitions

Tonee Messiah’s work captures poetic and fleeting moments – a quiet gesture, a knowing smile, or a lonely instant. While Baudelaire’s flaneur traverses the city streets via it’s rhythms and flows, Messiah wanders through the landscapes of human relationships, making gentle observations on her way.

Messiah was born in Israel in 1983 and moved back and forth between Australia and Israel several times during her childhood before settling in Sydney where she still lives and works. She graduated from Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney with Honours in 2004 and has been exhibiting with Gallery 9 since 2007. Messiah’s work is in the collection of Monash University Museum of Art.

Messiah was a finalist in the RBS Emerging Artist Award 2010.
